In pictures: Vigyan Ashram
Enjoying education

Children from all over India come to the small village of Pabal to attend Vigyan Ashram.

Here, Vaibhav Konde and Bhargav Sonoji learn the art of heavy metal welding.

Vaibhav failed his ninth standard exams in school. He says that he never liked sitting in classrooms and listening to theoretical lectures.

Bhargav is from Gujarat state, and even though teaching is in the Marathi language, he says he has no problem following lessons because the focus is on practical skills.
